* News / Alberta: Registered nurses welcome Auditor General's Report on Health System by katty: May 26, 2017, 08:01:01 PM
EDMONTON, May 26, 2017 /CNW/ - The College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CARNA) fully supports the analysis of Alberta's health system provided by the Auditor General in the recently released report Better Healthcare for Albertans. 

"This report boldly identifies the underlying issues that are preventing our health system from providing best-quality care to Albertans," says CARNA president Jerry Macdonald.  "It is time to center the system on the needs of the patient and make better use of the full knowledge and skills of all health providers.  Inter-disciplinary teams have been shown to produce better results for patients at a lower cost to the healthcare system."

The report cites research showing that primary care teams in high performing healthcare systems typically employ three or four non-physicians for each physician.  By contrast, even in the province's primary care network (PCN) program, there is approximately one non-physician for every four physicians.

"Addressing the health system structure issues, implementing payment models that promote closer integration of physicians services, and developing clinical information systems that provide the right information to the right people in the right place and at the right time can be achieved in Alberta but it requires commitment by all stakeholders to make transformational change happen,"  says Macdonald.

CARNA is the regulatory college and professional association for Alberta's more than 37,000 registered nurses including nurses in direct care, education, research and administration as well as nurse practitioners. The CARNA Awards of Excellence honour and celebrate their commitment and pursuit of nursing excellence.

* News / Crisis Looms in Health Sector as Zimbabwe Nurses Threaten Strike by katty: May 26, 2017, 07:55:18 PM
HARARE - Another crisis is looming at State hospitals, after fed up nurses gave notice to the government that they would soon embark on a crippling strike — as they press for improved working conditions and the dismissal of the Health Services Board (HSB) secretariat, which they accuse of failing to act on their grievances.

This comes as chaos continues to ravage public hospitals which have been hit by shortages of drugs and key personnel, as well as new outbreaks of communicable diseases such as cholera, malaria and typhoid.

“We feel the HSB does not understand us and how we operate. We have been raising our grievances since 2010 and up to now, 11 years later, they have not yet addressed those issues.

“The purpose of the HSB is to address the conditions of service for health workers, but this is not happening,” Zimbabwe Nurses Association secretary general, Enock Dongo, told the Daily News yesterday.

He said all nurses, regardless of qualifications and experience, were being classified under the lowest grade.

“Even when you have been working as a nurse for 10 years, and when you should be considered to be a senior, you get the lowest salary of about $285. It’s all because your grade doesn’t change. You remain grade D1, instead of maybe D3.

“Someone can also have three or four diplomas on top of a nursing degree and still be in that low grade. We have specialities in midwifery, intensive care and physiotherapy, but all that is not being recognised.

“We want the HSB secretariat to be removed ... and we will not stop demonstrating until they are removed. They are non-medical people and they don’t even know how we operate as health workers,” Dongo said.

“When we discuss our issues with the board, they appear to understand, but the problem comes with implementation … that’s where the problem is. We cannot have the lives and professions of over 35 000 people in disarray because of a few people, and we are saying we are fed up,” he added.

Public hospitals are struggling under the weight of a myriad other problems, including the shortage of drugs and continued under-funding by the government.

Despite the humongous problems bedevilling the public health sector, the misfiring Zanu PF government has continued to overlook its urgent needs, as demonstrated by the allocation of a measly budget to hospitals this year.

In his budget presentation in December, Finance minister Patrick Chinamasa reduced the vote for health from $331 million to a disappointing $282 million — a figure that falls way short of meeting the big demands of the public health sector.

This has seen Zimbabwe’s public health sector lurching from one crisis to the other over the past two decades, as the country’s stone-broke government struggles to pay workers and stock hospitals.

Early this year, health services across the country were crippled when doctors and nurses staged a national strike, pressing for improved working conditions.

In 2016, major referral hospitals also had to suspend many services as a result of the shortage of drugs, including painkillers — exposing how much things have fallen apart in the country since the early 2000s.

United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH) and Harare Central Hospital were among the major health facilities that had to suspend normal services as a result of drug shortages, including pethidine — a synthetic compound used as a painkiller, especially for women in labour and during caesarean operations.

* News / American Nurisng Groups Oppose Trump cut to Nursing in 2018 Budget by katty: May 26, 2017, 11:29:44 AM
American Association of Colleges of Nursing and National League for Nursing Oppose Cuts to Nursing in President’s FY 2018 Budget Proposal

Reacting to President Trump’s proposed budget, the National League for Nursing (NLN) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) expressed the associations’ alarm at the negative impact that certain elements of the budget will have on the nursing workforce and the nation’s access to high-quality nursing care.

The NLN and AACN cannot support the president’s budget due to its near elimination of funding to programs that help educate the nurse and nurse educator workforce. For more than 50 years, HRSA’s Title VIII Nursing Workforce Development Programs have been a mainstay in the pipeline, ultimately improving access to, and quality of, health care in underserved communities.

These competitive grants strengthen education programs, including faculty recruitment and retention efforts; clinical lab enhancements; loans, scholarships, and services that enable students to overcome obstacles to completing their nursing education programs. Moreover, Title VIII grants support the education of nurse faculty preparing them for a future in academia. This increases the pool of faculty during a time of shortage and allows schools of nursing to accept more qualified applicants. These programs are a direct investment in the clinicians who will provide health services to patients in all communities including in rural and underserved populations.

Eliminating $146 million in Title VIII nursing program funding is counter intuitive to the president’s goal of increasing access and reducing costs. It is crucial that the federal investment meets current and future nursing and nurse educator demands. This cannot be relegated to private or state funding alone.

AACN and the NLN will continue to advocate for federal support in nursing education programs that are essential to the health and well-being of our nation.

* News / Historic Win For New Zealand Midwives, Can Now Design own Funding Model by katty: May 26, 2017, 11:06:47 AM
Press Release – New Zealand College of Midwives

For the first time in New Zealand history, community based midwives (Lead Maternity Carers – LMCs) will be designing their own funding model for the countrys midwifery-led maternity system.Historic Win For Midwives

For the first time in New Zealand history, community based midwives (Lead Maternity Carers – LMCs) will be designing their own funding model for the country’s midwifery-led maternity system.

The College of Midwives has withdrawn its court action following mediation because it now has legally binding certainty that addresses their long-standing concerns about pay equity and working conditions.

College Chief Executive Karen Guilliland says the mediation, which commenced in August 2016, has resulted in a significant number of historic firsts.

“The biggest,” says Guilliland, “is that for the first time in New Zealand history, midwives will themselves be designing pay structures and working conditions for community LMC midwives. We will be working with ministry officials on this re-design process. In the past, funding and conditions have been decided by a system that seldom included midwives or even considered what midwives do,” she says. “For the first time too, funding negotiations for midwives will be legally bound by a set of comprehensive pay equity principles recently agreed to by the government, and that makes us an important part of the global pay equity drive,” she says.

Mrs Guilliland says one of the key points and another first is that if the MOH fails to meet these agreements, the profession has grounds to return to court.

“The agreement by the government to our conditions is excellent news for today’s midwives as well as midwives still to enter the profession,” she says. “This futureproofs the midwifery-led maternity system which is also good news for mothers and babies.”

Other wins from the mediation include an “interim” pay increase of 6% (interim as it covers the period of the re-design process (to Aug 2018) ), and an additional $1 million to be targeted towards urgent areas of need – for example urgent urban locum relief and other urgent travel, where for example a woman has to transfer to a hospital several hours away and the midwife has had to fund and find her own way home.

“The pay increase, together with a 2.5% rise from last year and 2% in 2015, equates to about $220 per pregnant woman; that’s where the pregnancy and birth is uncomplicated. This is of course welcome but it is only a start towards addressing the existing pay equity gap of 30%,” says Karen Guilliland. “What will help address that further, is the new re-design of the funding system which will involve consulting all College members. The Government is supporting this by including the costs of that in the budget bid for 2018.”

She says the College of Midwives and the Ministry of Health have worked extremely hard to get to this stage. Future negotiations are now supported by a legally binding agreement. The College is confident this will ensure that midwives never again find themselves so unrecognised and undervalued.

“The College is confident this will provide midwives with the conditions and remuneration that fairly recognises their unique role in maternity care. We now have the opportunity to make sure midwives are respected and properly reimbursed for the 24 hours a day service they provide. It will future proof both the profession and the service for mothers and babies; services that make a positive difference to families, throughout NZ.”

Karen Guilliland is in Wellington today and will be attending the first regional consultation meeting with the College’s members from the Wellington region.

* News / Nurse Gayle Woodford: Lack of Space in Court Delays Sentencing Submissions by katty: May 26, 2017, 11:00:33 AM
A lack of available court space has forced a delay in final sentencing submissions for the man who killed outback nurse Gayle Woodford.

Dudley Davey has pleaded guilty to the murder of Ms Woodford in March last year.

The 56-year-old's body was found in a shallow grave at Fregon, in South Australia's north, where she had worked in the local health centre.

Davey's case returned to court on Friday for a victim impact statement to be presented on behalf of the Fregon community.

But Justice Ann Vanstone said a problem with the availability of courtrooms would prevent the hearing going ahead.

She set down June 5 as the new date for final submissions and apologised to Ms Woodford's relatives and friends who had travelled to attend the hearing.

In earlier submissions to the court, Ms Woodford's husband Keith called for Davey never to be released.

He said he feared the killer would just offend again.

"I beg this court never to let Dudley Davey out again," Mr Woodford said in his victim impact statement.

* News / Lagos Hospital Closes Gates To Prevent Protesting Doctors’ Walk-Out by katty: May 26, 2017, 10:42:30 AM
Management of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) closed its gates on Wednesday to prevent protesting doctors from marching out of the facility.
 
A security officer on the medical campus disclosed to SaharaReporters that the Chief Security Officer, who he identified simply as Mr. Kpuduwei, ordered the gates to be locked.
 
The president of the LUTH branch of the Association of Resident Doctors, Dr. Adebayo Sekumade, explained that the doctors had planned to hold a protest over unpaid salaries, poor working conditions and other grievances at a venue within the hospital. However, when the doctors arrived at the venue on Wednesday morning, the room was locked, prompting them to storm out of the hospital.
 
“We set out to exercise our fundamental human rights as guaranteed by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, which empowers us to assemble. When we arrived at LUTH this morning, we were locked out of the intended venue and there were police stationed all over the hospital premises,” he said.
 
“Patients are locked outside the gates. The hospital is meant to save lives and not to take them. Workers are at the main gate and they are being locked out while sick patients are outside begging to be allowed into the hospital.”
 
Speaking further, Dr. Sekumade lamented the poor, deteriorating state of the hospital.
 
“The hospital has not been working for a very long time. There are no materials to work with - no needles and syringes, no latex gloves, no lights,” he said. “We have come to say there must be change.”
 
Secretary of the LUTH branch of the Medical Health Workers Union of Nigeria, Comrade Adeyinka Adewale, asserted that LUTH management is violating human rights laws by restricting people from moving in and out of the hospital.
 
“The management of LUTH has decided to infringe on the rights of workers with regard to freedom of movement and speech. This confirms our complaints that the head of the management of LUTH is a tyranny and a dictator. He stopped us from embarking on our peaceful protest,” he lamented.
 
“Sick people are right outside the hospital, but the management is also barring them from coming inside LUTH and not caring if they die outside. We don’t know why he is doing this, but it is sad that someone who calls himself a professor and a doctor would deliberately lock the gates of the hospital.”
 
Another union member, Comrade Shabba Johnson Adetokunbo, also decried the poor treatment of staff in the hospital. He said that workers are owed salaries and allowances and they are not being promoted when due.
